ESL Airplane is a new, independent blog for ESL and EFL teachers who love bringing original, creative activities into their classrooms. I’m the kind of teacher who likes having a textbook on hand, but also enjoys throwing in lot of engaging, low-prep supplemental activities that you probably won’t find in a book. At first, I’m going to focus on putting together a great collection of materials for lower-level English learners (from A0-B1) because I find that there aren’t as many good resources available online as there are for higher levels.
In case you’re curious, I’ll tell you a little bit about me: I teach ESL in New York. I have a masters degree in TESOL, and I’ve been working in the field for around ten years, both as a teacher and in content creation and editing. Like a lot of ESL teachers, I’ve had opportunities to teach students of all age levels, from 2-year olds to senior citizens. These days, I teach adults most of the time. I love, love, love teaching adult beginners!
Anyway, one day, if my little blog ever turns into a big, super-successful blog, and I become a teaching superhero, maybe I’ll tell you my name and my favorite ice cream flavors and all of that other random stuff that people usually tell you in their blogs. For now, though, since I’m just, getting started, and this site is still a little messy, I think I’ll stay anonymous.
